Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for celebrating us. We are glad you celebrate us. When the enemy is attacking, we choose to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. We declare in the midst of our battles Greater is He that is within us than he that is in the world. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. We thank you Father that there is therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. We walk by faith and not by sight. You declared before we called, You would answer, and while we were yet speaking, You would hear. Father, we are called according to your purpose and therefore rejoice that all things will work together for good because we love You. We thank you today that your name is a strong tower. The righteous run into it and are safe. Father, You are our light and salvation. When shall I fear? You are the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? We thank you Father for all Your grace and mercies. Amen

A minister’s prayer for the opening session of the Kansas Senate……All of our politicians could learn greatly from this! 

When minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities. But, what they heard instead was a stirring prayer, passionately calling our country to repentance and righteousness.

The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest. But, in six short weeks, the Central Christian Church had logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only a few of those calls responding negatively. The church has received international requests for copies of the prayer from India, Africa and Korea. Commentator Paul Harvey aired the prayer on “The Rest of the Story” on the radio and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired.

With the Lord’s help, may this prayer sweep our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called a Christian nation that fears the Lord!

The Prayer

Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask Your forgiveness and to seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, “Woe on those who call evil good,” but that’s exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We confess that we have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it pluralism. We have worshiped other gods and called it multiculturalism. We have endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have neglected the needy and called it self-preservation. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn children and called it a choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem. We have abused power and called it political savvy. We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, O God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us to the center of Your will. I ask it in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Words to Save a Nation, to Save a People

“if my people, which are called by my name,shall humble themselves,and pray,and seek my face,and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven,and will forgive their sin,and will heal their land.”  – 2 Chronicles 7:14

Fellowship of the Unashamed

I am part of the “Fellowship of the Unashamed”. I have the power of the Holy Ghost. The die has been cast, I have stepped over the line, the decision has been made. I am a disciple of His. I won’t look back, let up, slow down. I won’t back away or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense and my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tame vision, mundane talking, cheesy giving and dwarfed goals. I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, prominence or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, top nor recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. I now live by His presence, I learn by faith, love by patience, live by prayer, and labor by His power. My pace is set, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable and my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, diluted or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, or let go. I will not slow up until I have preached up, stored up, paid up and prayed up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know and work till He comes for His own. And when He comes He will have no problem recognizing me, for I am the sanctified one.

Whenever we are dealing with an issue that is not specifically addressed in scripture, there are four questions that can be asked which will help determine the will of God on that particular subject.

These questions are:

1. Does this bring glory to God?  1Cor. 10:31
2. Does this further the kingdom of God and point others toward Jesus Christ?  Mat. 6:33
3.
Does this express love and care for others? 1Cor. 16:14; Phil. 2:3
4. Does this strengthen our relationship with God? John 17:3

Ever said this?

“Please teach me, Lord. I want to know exactly how to pray”

I need some words.
Which ones are right?
Please tell me what to say.

I’ve bowed my head,
I have knelt down,
But, should I be upright?
I’ve closed my eyes,
I’ve raised my hands,
Or should I fold them tight?

Do I stand up?
Should I sit down?
Dear Lord, what do You like?
Are lights turned on?
Or are they off?
Or maybe candle light?

Wear my glasses?
Take them off?
Be at my desk or table?
Should I whisper?
Speak out loud?
Do I quote the Bible?

What do You think
About the time?
Do You prefer the dawn?
Should I pray fast,
Or keep it slow?
Better short or long?

I’m new at this.
What are the rules?
I want to do it right.
How do I know
You’ll even hear
That I am in Your sight?

And while I sat there quietly,
Waiting for some sign,
I heard a gentle voice say,
“Oh, dearest child of mine,
Do you think I really care
About the time of day,
Or whether you are standing up,
Or kneeling when you pray?”

“I don’t care about your posture,
Or about the place you choose;
Just open up your soul to Me,
I have no other rules.
Tell Me what is in your heart,
And tell Me what you seek.
Tell Me of your sorrows,
And of things that make you weak.”

“Speak to me in private
About what concerns you most.
I know about your good deeds;
You have no need to boast.
My child, you don’t need lessons.
Just talk to Me each day.
Tell me anything you want, dear child,
Anyone can pray.”
